Do ceramic braces take longer?
Ceramic braces are fitted to the front of your teeth, and consist of subtle, clear or tooth coloured brackets with metal wires running through them.
Ceramic braces are an attractive alternative to metal braces as they are much less noticeable. The brackets are a similar size and shape to metal brackets but are clear or tooth coloured and so blend in more.
Some people have ceramic braces if they are not suitable for Invisalign® (clear aligners) treatment (due to having more extreme irregularities of the teeth) but still want the option of a hidden or discreet brace during treatment.
Ceramic braces are also sometimes chosen because they are more budget-friendly than lingual braces.
Whatever your reason for choosing ceramic braces, you can be sure of getting great results.
Our chosen brands: Clarity™ - Tooth Coloured
Clarity™ Ceramic Braces are strong like metal and they also are easily taken off at the end of your treatment. They are a great alternative to metal braces and can even be worn if you participate in sports.
The braces are translucent in appearance, don't stain or discolour and are surprisingly comfortable.
This is a popular teeth straightening appliance at Northenden House as patients are able to continue without the worry of a brace being obvious.
